Las Vegas Thousand Trails - Close to strip for Vegas fun
  • Editor Rating

  • Rated 3.5 stars

This city campground is about four miles from the Las Vegas Strip. It is mostly freeway driving to the park. The park entrance is reached via U-turn when traveling north on Boulder Highway.

Las Vegas Thousand Trails Resort has the most closely spaced site configuration of any of the 40-plus Thousand Trails Resorts we have visited. The park is kept secure with a gated entry which is manned; and the perimeter of the park is surrounded by a wall topped by wire.

In the Las Vegas area, this much security is nice to have. Las Vegas also has natural hiking areas within an easy drive, such as Red Rock Natural Area, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, and Valley of Fire State Park.
